Huston Case Study | Watch What Happens


Background:
McGavic Outdoor Power has long believed in the power of on premise advertising as they purchased their first Watchfire electronic message center (EMC) in 2003.  Their original EMC was a one-color display capable of text based messages. At the end of 2016 the City of Kokomo announced that all pylon signs would have to be converted to monument-style signs by the year 2022.  This announcement pushed Mr. McGavic to update his signage as he had already been considering upgrading the electronic portion of his sign.

Results:
After a 14-year run of using the one-color sign, Mr. McGavic upgraded to new technology and purchased a Watchfire full color 19mm EMC.  The new full color EMC allows them to publish photos of their lawn equipment & other inventory, vendor ads, and logos as well as animations that are provided in the library of images provided by Watchfire.  McGavic’s achieved great looking signage while keeping in compliance with the city’s new sign regulations.

Testimonial:
"Our old sign served us well for many years, but as technology progressed our sign grew outdated and we were due for an update.  The new sign has opened up many new and exciting forms of advertisement for us at the click of a button. The new sign is extremely easy to program and makes updating the sign a simple, fast, and easy task.  Updating our sign to this new color display was one of the best choices we have made in a long time for our advertisement.  We look forward to using this sign for many years to come and we are very satisfied with the service Huston has provided."
